769 Possible Causes for Lens Opacity

  • Renal Coloboma Syndrome

    The mother of this patient had a mild optic disk hypoplasia, progressive lens opacities, and late-onset renal disease.[journals.lww.com] Over time, a progressive axial myopia in the right eye, band keratopathy in the left eye, and progressive bilateral posterior lens opacities were noted.[journals.lww.com] This first published long-term follow-up of renal coloboma syndrome shows progressive posterior lens opacities, axial myopia, and band keratopathy with only a small decline[journals.lww.com]

  • Cataract

    Nuclear opalescence (NO) was graded with the Lens Opacities Classification System III (LOCS III).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cataract grade based on wide-field fundus image, the Lens Opacity Classification System III, macular thickness, and SD-OCT SNR were compared.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] All participants (n 275) were divided according to the Lens Opacities Classification System III (LOCS III) into: 1) study group (subjects with clinically significant cataract[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Nephronophthisis

    Due to corneal and lens opacities and searching nystagmus, fundus pictures were of poor quality. Kidney biopsy showed four glomeruli.[healio.com]

  • Craniofacial Dysplasia-Osteopenia Syndrome

    Visually significant lens opacities may require surgery.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] A deficiency of vitamin D should also be corrected and has been reported to correct at least some of the lens opacities. Cataract removal can be considered.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] Cataracts, Growth Hormone Deficiency, and Skeletal Dysplasia Clinical Characteristics Ocular Features: Lens opacities can be seen in infancy or childhood and may be congenital[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]

  • Primary Malignant Melanoma of the Conjunctiva

    Pressure on the lens by the enlarging tumor can cause astigmatism , sublaxtion of the lens and formation of a localised lens opacity .[enacademic.com]

  • UV Exposure

    opacity and apoptotic cell death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Long-term exposure causes degenerative changes such as unwanted tissue growth on the cornea, opacities of the lens known as cataracts, degeneration of the retina, and various[icnirp.org] What is known, however, is that cumulative exposure to UV rays is one of the causes of opacity of the eye's lens, called cataract, a condition that displays itself primarily[uv.biospherical.com]

  • Posterior Subcapsular Cataract

    Nuclear, cortical and posterior subcapsular opacities of the lens were classified according to the Lens Opacities Classification System II.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Linear calibration lines are plotted for each type of lens opacity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The team also found significant associations between cortical lens opacity and a diagnosis of diabetes, posterior subcapsular lens opacity and HbA1c, and between nuclear lens[medwirenews.com]

  • Fluvastatin

    , discoloration, dryness of skin/mucous membranes, changes to hair/nails) Reproductive: Gynecomastia, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction Eye: Progression of cataracts (lens[reference.medscape.com] opacities), ophthalmoplegia Laboratory abnormalities: Elevated transaminases, alkaline phosphatase, gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase and bilirubin; thyroid function abnormalities[reference.medscape.com]

  • Autoimmune Polyendocrinopathy Type 1

    One of the female patients with lens opacities was 15 years of age. She had a unilateral small posterior polar cataract.[jcor.in] 17 patients with APS1. [3] Three of 17 (18%)patients had lens opacities, none of which appeared to affect visual acuity.[jcor.in] The other patient in Chang et al ., series with lens opacity was a 14-year-old male patient who had dot opacities in his lenses, and had alopecia and the loss of eyelashes[jcor.in]

  • Cerebrotendinous Xanthomatosis

    This study highlights the morphology of lens opacities in a family with genetically confirmed disease. Prospective case series.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bottom two images show fleck opacities and anterior opacities of the crystalline lens in the right eye of a 10 year old affected with CTX.[eyewiki.aao.org] Lens opacification may require extraction at that time and aspirated lens material may contain lipid-containing vacuoles.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]
